1. There is a level of yoga to suit you.

According to a study by Yoga Journal there are currently nearly 15 million Americans practicing yoga.  Many celebrities and professional athletes are among them.  Although it can be intimidating seeing the adept practitioners of yoga bending their bodies in elaborate contortions, the beauty of yoga is that there are so many different levels and disciplines within yoga that almost anyone of any age or level of fitness can practice it and have the benefits.  You just need to find a class of yoga that suits you. 

2. Yoga has a profound beneficial effect on your stress and anxiety levels.

3. Yoga also has a positive effect on weight management. 

People who practice yoga often lose a surprising amount of weight even though the calorie burn associated with yoga is relatively low compared to aerobic exercise.  A typical 150 pound person is likely to burn approximately 150 calories during an hour long yoga session while they would probably burn over 300 just by going walking for an hour.  The theory is that because practicing yoga creates a stronger connection between your mind and body, you become more aware of what your eating, how it affects your body and how it feels to be full.  People who practice yoga often find unhealthy eating options less attractive, showing more preference for food which has a positive effect on their body.  As well keeping yourself trim, you are also likely to see a noticeable improvement in your muscle tone and flexibility when practicing yoga. 

Go on...share the benefits of yoga with your friends and family. It may be the best thing you do for them today!
